-A +A
The Colfax High JV football team will open a critical season-ending, four-game stretch this Friday night that could make or break the Falcons’ season. In what is looking to shape up as a tight Pioneer Valley League JV race, Colfax will host Foothill on Friday with an early 5 p.m. kickoff set at Marson Stadium because of homecoming. “I think these last four games are all very important,” said Colfax JV coach Justin Heimann after his Falcons opened PVL action last Friday by going on the road and drubbing Center, 41-7. Now 5-1 overall on the season and 1-0 in PVL games, Heimann said his team will need to focus mentally and physically for the final four games. “We have some good JV squads in our league this year,” Heimann said. “You really can’t overlook anyone.” Once again receiving strong offensive line work from the likes of Mark Lerner at center, Mario Margherita and Zach Bianchi at guards and Morgan Proffitt and Elliot Swan at tackles, the Falcons were able to dominate at the point of attack in the win over Center. Running back Tanner Kane helped key the offense as he rushed for 96 yards and scored on a 45-yard touchdown run. Baily Bean added 44 more yards on two carries, while Chas Reisinger contributed 33 yards on five carries. Austin Moore also had a hand in the win as he added 30 more ground yards and scored a touchdown. The Falcons also sparkled through the air as quarterback Michael Wilson enjoyed a good night by connecting on 14 of 18 passing attempts for 208 yards and four touchdowns. Kyle Bryant was Colfax’s big receiver as he hauled in seven passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns. On defense Alex Nevarez (interception), Nick Blake (fumble recovery) and Austin Ames (sack) also played well. Colfax Frosh 27, Liberty Ranch 7 – After three weeks on the road, the Falcons’ frosh return home to host Mesa Verde today at 5:30 p.m. Colfax improved to 6-0 on the season with the win over Liberty Ranch last week. Colfax’s Avo Shahabian scored two touchdowns, while Sam Lahaie added another. Colfax’s other score came on a pass from Logan Hurst to Carrick Hoffart.
